CHP usually opens for submissions on the morning of March 1st, then they close when they reach their cap of 300. This cap is reached within a matter of hours. In 2021, they did not open on March 1st, so no open submissions since March 2020. Subscribe to their newsletter to get submission updates.

8-13-10 I guess things are still unsettled for them:

Please note: In order to reorganize our internal procedures to accommodate our recent growth, Coffee House Press will not be accepting submissions as of January 19, 2010 . This policy is only temporary, but we do expect it to last at least six months. Please check this web page periodically for future updates. In the meantime, we thank you for thinking of Coffee House Press and wish you the best of luck in finding a home for your manuscript.
